Alarmed residents in Islington, London, UK, have highlighted a truly disturbing habit of local CCTV camera operators - spying into homes.
A CCTV camera on a 70 foot pole has been found staring directly into the bedrooms of residents, which is raising awareness of the Orwellian Big Brother State that has become Great Britain.
Resident Jessamy Corbett is concerned the camera is being used to spy into the family home.
She said: “We have a right to absolute privacy in our own homes. I’ve no issue with CCTV. But I do have an issue about it looking into my bedroom. We want it taken away and put where there’s no potential to intrude.”
Another concerned resident, butcher Maurice Wood, said: “Our shop is celebrating its centenary next year. But currently I don’t feel very much in the party mood. I’m all in favour of CCTV for the deterrence of crime but there is nothing more unnerving and distressing than having a camera aimed at your home.
“My daughter has even had the camera pointing towards her bedroom.”
Islington Council are considering a proposal by MP Emily Thornberry to have the offending camera relocated.
